Chairman Flynn announced that the ringing of and use of cell phones, pagers and similar sound- 
producing electronic devices are prohibited at the meeting. He advised any person responsible 
for the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound producing electronic devices 
may be removed from the meeting. 

3. Public Comment 

Alex Clemens thanked the board for being responsive to residents of Treasure Island. He stated 
that service has increased exponentially but residents are reaching the point where capacity is an 
issue. He pointed out that there were missed runs last Tuesday and Wednesday resulting in 
people being stranded. These are people who depend solely on Muni and if they're stranded 
during late night hours, it costs $25 by cab to get home. 

Erik Fitzpatrick, Treasure Island resident, also mentioned that service had improved but urged 
more frequent weekend and skeletal night owl service. 

Kieran Flaherty, T.I. resident, echoed the sentiments of other speakers about being pleased with 
service but he has a continued issue with driver politeness with passengers. He encouraged 
drivers to maintain friendliness and advocated for more frequent service during rush hours and 
during the weekend. 

Marya Pezzano noted that service has not improved over the past few months with so many 
missed buses. She is concerned that when buses are missing, nobody at Muni seems to know 
about it. She asked why grant monies weren't going to be used until August when they were 
available no and talked about an operator who refused to help a mother with 2 children last week. 



Derek Mendez thanked the board for past help and understands that there have been funds 
approved for future service. He suggested changing the route to better serve T.I. residents. 

Alex Clemens acknowledged Muni for a new record in government responsiveness as Peter 
Straus just told him that Muni will serve Treasure Island every 45 minutes. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE MUNICIPAL TRANSPORTATION AGENGY 
BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTION AS STATED, BY THE 
DIRECTOR OF TRANSPORTATION, AND CITY ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

4. Discussion of the Municipal Transportation Agency's FY2002 operating budget in the 
amount of $446,976,583 and modification of Muni's fare schedule by waiving fares on New 
Year's Eve 2001. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and budget.) 

Lisa Mancini, Chief Operating Officer and Gigi Harrington, Chief Financial Officer reviewed the 
budget. 

Chairman Flynn stated that it would be helpful to compare this year's numbers to last year's 
numbers. He asked for additional information about what monies are budgeted for training as 
compared to last year as he would like to see safety improved throughout the system. Also 
requested was the net cost for transportation to Candlestick last year. 

Director Vaughns asked about the status of the board's compensation. Chairman Flynn stated 
that the previous action taken by the board to increase their compensation was denied by the 
Board of Supervisors and it was incumbent on the MTA board to include it or not. Director 
Vaughns stated that action needs to be considered. 

Director Cisneros asked staff to identify funds in the budget for pedestrian safety. 

Director Casey suggested more narrative in the future to help people understand what's contained 
in the budget. In response to a request by the director, Peter Straus, Manager of Service Planning 
reviewed how service is prioritized and added. 

Larry Martin, International Vice President, TWU-250A talked about the Municipal Improvement 
Fund as one of the most important programs in Muni's budget and introduced Danny Beagle, the 
MIF program coordinator. 

Danny Beagle, MIF program coordinator reviewed the MIF program and budget for the next 
fiscal year. 

Director Bourgart asked to see the statistics on the cost per trainee hour and asked about the 
projection for next year. He also wanted to see more detail on the "Train the Trainer" program. 

2 



The director wants to know how the MTA board can get involved in this program. General 
Manager Burns will discuss involvement with the chairman, as there are vacancies on the MIF 
board. 

Director Casey urged staff to look beyond private consultants as City College has helped 
minimize costs for programs he's been involved with. He has a continuing question about the 
integration of the MIF and Joint Labor Management boards and would like to hear how those 
programs will be integrated. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Edward Mason is disappointed that there are no organizational charts, head counts or capital 
budgets contained within it. He suggested that last year's accomplishments should be 
highlighted and wondered about the value of a $60,000 work order to the Mayor's Office. He 
suggested that we use the experience of other regional transit properties to streamline Muni's 
budget. 

David Pilpel suggested that the board look at what was spent on MIF this year prior to throwing 
more money at it. He is extremely disappointed in level of detail and lack of narrative in the 
budget, calling it woefully inadequate. He is not sure that the proposed budget relates to service 
standards and suggested a need for a reserve fund. He added that the CAC had not discussed the 
"class pass" or any fare changes. 

ADJOURN - The meeting was adjourned at 6:57 p.m. 

A tape of the meeting is on file in the office of the Secretary to the Municipal Transportation 
Agency Board of Directors.

The General Manager's Special Recognition award was presented to Raoul Roberto who 
maintains the scheduling system, a critical system at Muni. He has a "can do" attitude and 
always puts his customers first. Chairman Flynn expressed appreciation and thanks on behalf of 
the board. Mr. Roberto said that he always works to the best of his ability, without any thought 
of recognition or award. He humbly accepted the award and hopes to live up to expectations. 
Ray Antonio, TWU-Local 250- A, added his thanks and appreciation to Mr. Roberto for his 
service. 

General Manager Burns announced the start up of SOMA service on February 3 and the 
completion of the J-line rail replacement project on February 2. Muni is about to begin 
construction on the K-line which will be a 27 month effort. He also noted that service to the 
XFL at Pac Bell Park went smoothly on Sunday and thanked Chinese Americans at Muni for 
their efforts with the Chinese New Year Parade. 

Ted Unaegbu, Manager, Proof of Payment Program reviewed P.O.P. after the first six months of 
full implementation. He stated that the evasion rate was less than 1 % and during that time Muni 
revenues continued to increase. Director Lim hopes that the program can be expanded to other 
lines. Director Cisneros commented that some riders have concerns about the manner in which 
fare inspectors approach individuals. Mr. Unaegbu said that the core emphasis of the training is 
public relations and he immediately investigates any reports of harassment or intimidation. 

Chairman Flynn asked for additional information about the cost to provide the program, 
including the cost of inspectors, wages and benefits paid and what it costs to train them. 

Fred Stephens, Deputy General Manager gave an update on Neoplan noise and what Muni and 
Neoplan is doing to mitigate the issue. He said that a mid-term solution will begin on February 
12 and will be complete in mid-May. Staff is continuing to work with Neoplan on a longer-term 
solution. 

Vernon Crawley, EEO Manager reviewed the last quarter's caseload that resulted in 41 cases 
being closed. Their goal is to resolve cases within 90 days of filing. He will be filling 
remaining vacancies within the next month. Members of the board expressed their appreciation 
for the work that's been done since the last report. 

Chairman Flynn urged staff to being training quickly. Mr. Crawley stated that he wanted to be 
diligent and deliberate in hiring the right staff and will begin training soon. Larry Williams, 
D.G.M., HR/LR/EEO added that adequate monies were in this year's budget and they are 
bringing the function "in-house" rather than as a work order to the Department of Human 
Resources. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Linton Stables, CAC chair, reviewed the CAC's budget recommendations and added that there 
was unanimous approval of the budget. He added that the CAC was very active this month and 



that the committee structure was working well. A copy of the CAC's budget resolution was 
provided to the board secretary. 

8. Public Comment 

Edward Mason survived the J-line rail replacement and thinks that bus service was generally 
good. He recounted an incident on the 14-line where many people had to wait for over an hour. 
He added that the signal at 18 th had been fixed since the last meeting. 

Daniel Murphy, Rescue Muni, thanked the board for endorsing the diesel path, as it will improve 
service reliability.

Chairman Flynn announced that the ringing of and use of cell phones, pagers and similar sound- 
producing electronic devices are prohibited at the meeting. He advised that any person responsible 
for the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound-producing electronic devices 
may be removed from the meeting. 

5. Introduction of New or Old Business by Board Members 
None. 

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Muni's Mission, Vision and Values 
-Quarterly Report on Key Capital Projects 
-Service Standards Quarterly Report 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 

Director Burns announced that the groundbreaking ceremony for the Ocean Ave Reconstruction 
Project was held last week but the city has run into some problems with PG&E. Muni staff is 

1 



working with the mayor's office to get PG&E to fulfill their commitment to the community. 
Muni is proceeding with the first section of work. 

Director Burns discussed a series of meetings and workshops to develop a "constitution" for the 
organization consisting of a Mission Statement, Vision and Values. Meetings will be held this 
week with labor unions and then at every division so employee input can be solicited. Burns will 
provide the schedule of meetings to the board and asked for the board's involvement early in the 
process. 

Vince Harris, Deputy General Manager, Construction and Fred Stephens, Deputy General 
Manager, Maintenance, reviewed the quarterly report on key capital projects. 

Director Bourgart asked if staff could report back to the board about a letter received from the 
Java Beach Cafe regarding the rail replacement project. 

Lisa Mancini, Chief Operations Officer presented the second quarter Service Standards Report 
and noted that there has been measurable improvement in the system. She discussed current 
plans to improve the schedule for the Cable Car division. She also announced a Castro Shuttle 
starting on March 30 to relieve overcrowding on the K & N lines. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 
No report was made. 

8. Public Comment 

Norm Rolfe wondered why cable car schedules can't be kept when there have been a number of 
street improvements that should have made it easier to keep the schedule. He believes that the 
biggest reason why cable car service is so erratic is because of malingering. He urged 
management to address the problem. 

Judy West, Madrina Group, sent a package to the board regarding the Mission Street Right of 
Way. She has been spearheading a project to salvage the land from 8 th and Townsend to Treat 
and use it as a bikeway and greenbelt. She added that it's a real opportunity to set aside land for 
future light rail. (Chairman Flynn asked Peter Straus to meet with Ms. West regarding her 
project.) 

Deborah Doyle commented on the recent change on the 19-Polk inbound line that is affecting 
library patrons. The recent change resulted in the elimination of a bus stop in front of the 
library. Patrons now have to walk 2 blocks to catch the 19-line, many of them seniors and people 
with disabilities. She commented that library staff weren't consulted about the change and asked 
for a solution. (Chairman Flynn stated that the board had received other comments about this 
matter and that staff is looking for a way to solve the situation.)

None. 

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-EEO Status report 

-Co-Missioning Process 

-Bayview Hunter's Point Neighborhood Issues 

-Ongoing Muni Activities 



On Monday, April 23, there will be an Open House at 949 Presidio to kick off the "Backs First" 
pilot program. Over 225 employees have been tested with 30 people using the machines every 
day. The program is designed to strengthen back muscles which is a leading cause of work 
related injuries. 

Muni has been asked by the Mayor to work with Supervisor Sophie Maxwell and other 
department heads to address the health crisis in the Bay View Hunter's Point neighborhoods. 

In response to a question posed by Director Vaughns, Vernon Crawley will look at the number of 
cases of national origin as they remained constant between the two quarters. He will get back to 
the board with his analysis. 

Chairman Flynn noted that this quarter's EEO report is the best ever produced and commended 
staff for their hard work. 

Larry Williams, Deputy G.M., HR/LR/EEO and Michael Haberberger, SEIU briefed the board 
on Muni's Co-missioning Process. 

Director Casey asked staff to explain the differences between various initiatives at a future board 
meeting. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 
No report was made. 

8. Public Comment 

Frederick Hobson acknowledged that Muni has vastly improved since the arrival of Michael 
Burns. Mr. Hobson serves on the Animal Welfare Commission and spoke about a resolution 
unanimously endorsed by the AWC that calls on the Board of Supervisors and the MTA to 
eliminate charging animals full fares. He pointed out that the fares are infrequently collected and 
the revenue Muni collects is negligible. 

Suzanne Martin also asked the board to eliminate full fares for animals as it creates a hardship for 
seniors. 

Pat Snyder, representing neighbors on 100 Wawona St., spoke about the disruption that the K- 
Line shuttle has caused residents in her neighborhood. She feels that buses should be on West 
Portal. 

Byron Sigal spoke about the problems with the K-line shuttle in a residential neighborhood. The 
bus comes every 5 minutes throughout the day and night and the sound permeates the 
neighborhood. He urged that the line be moved to West Portal, 1 block away. 



Moses Grossman has been at 1001 Ulloa for 40 years and has been talking to Muni about 
problems with the 48-Quintara line for years. With the addition of the K-Shuttle, the situation is 

unbearable. 

Chairman Flynn stated that the situation merits a response from the General Manager and asked 
him to report back to the board at the next meeting. The board expects to have a resolution to the 
K-line shuttle by that time. He urged staff to hold meetings with the public prior to the May 1 
board meeting. 

General Manager Bums thanked the community for expressing their concerns. He became aware 
of the situation on Monday and made a site visit to the area immediately. He understands the 
concerns and has identified potential changes. He is working out the details with the community 
but wants to wait to announce those changes to make sure they don't negatively impact any other 
community. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE MUNICIPAL TRANSPORTATION AGENCY

Victor is a person who gets things done, especially high priority, confidential and rush projects. 
He exemplifies quality customer service. 

Victor Dunn thanked Mr. Burns and the Board but said that he couldn't be successful unless all 
employees are diligent in doing their jobs. Chairman Flynn added his personal thanks and 
expressed appreciation for Mr. Dunn's hard work on behalf of the board. 

Mr. Burns announced a solution to the K-line bus shuttle issue raised at the last meeting by 
Wawona St. Residents. Muni will use the West Portal Business corridor as the turnaround. He 
thanked the community and Muni staff for their responsiveness. 

Mr. Burns invited the Board to attend the Rail Roadeo at Green Division on Saturday, May 5 
from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. The winners of the local rodeo will compete nationally in Boston in 
June. Also on Saturday Muni staff will be attending the first of 1 1 district budget hearings to 
determine how city government can better meet resident's needs. 

The Quarterly Service Standards Report was presented by Lisa Mancini, Chief Operations 
Officer. She will present next year's standards to the board in June for adoption. 
Overall, the statistics show measurable improvements in many areas of performance. 

Director Lim asked staff to review with the board how the Service Standards are measured. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Linton Stables, Chairman, CAC, reported a problem at the CAC of reaching a quorum because 
the new members of the Board of Supervisors haven't made their appointments. He noted that 
the CAC is in total agreement that MTC's formula to set San Francisco's funds are inappropriate 
as Muni is a system that encourages high transit use, high ridership, and contributes to a cleaner 
environment. The CAC wants to work toward getting a better deal for the whole bay area. 
(Chairman Flynn asked that the board be provided with a list of current CAC members and that a 
letter be sent to the Board of Supervisors asking for appointees.) 

8. Public Comment 

Phil Snyder thanked the board for the opportunity to address the board. He lives at 198 Wawona 
and represents the neighbors. He said they got an excellent response to the issues they raised at 
the last meeting and hopes Muni will re-route the 48 line soon. He thanked Laura Spanjian and 
Joyce Garay in particular for responding so quickly. (Chairman Flynn stated that the board is 
happy that Muni was able to resolve the problem and thanked the community and staff for their 
cooperation and quick response.)

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Quarterly Report on Key Capital Projects 

-SOMA Service Implementation 

-Proposed landmark of Cable Car #1 and Forest Hill station 

-Ongoing Muni Activities 

General Manager Burns discussed the City's Landmarks Advisory Board's desire to give 
landmark status to Car #1 and the Forest Hill Station. Muni staff is working with the City 
Attorney and City Planning to insure that Muni maintains flexibility for future modifications. 

Chairman Flynn asked staff to return to the board with a staff report for further discussion before 
the board takes any action on the matter. 

Director Bourgart noted that he would hate to see Muni's hands tied irretrievably by this action. 

The general manager invited the board to the Bay View Hunter's Point meeting on May 3 1 at the 
South East Community Center. He has invited Muni employees who live in that area to talk 
about how to best meet the needs of the residents. 

On May 5, Muni held their annual Rail Roadeo at the Green Facility. The winning maintenance 
team of Hue Khuu, Tom Sheridan, Fernando Leal will be going to Boston to compete nationally. 
The first and second place finisher in Operations, Paul Lee and Michael Postel will also be going 
to Boston. Burns noted that Muni is sending a very strong team this year with many of the 
competitors being repeat winners. 

Chairman Flynn asked for a report at the next meeting about a solution for the 19-Polk line. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 
There was no report made. 

8. Public Comment 

Tim Kelly, President, SF Landmarks Board, understands the concerns about landmarking 
expressed by the directors and noted that the Landmarks Board and Planning staff want to 
reassure the MTA Board that the landmark designations won't interfere with Muni's ability to 
serve the people of San Francisco. 

Ernestine Weiss asked that the parking meters at the bus stop at Steuart and Market be removed. 
She noted that the number of pass-bys have increased and asked Muni to train their drivers 
better. She asked when the #1 California line would get new buses and thinks that a hotel at the 
Mission/Steuart layover is a mistake.

The General Manager's Special Recognition award was presented to Gene Turner at Central 
Control for his smooth and effective leadership as Lead-Logistics Dispatcher for the AM shift. 
The quality of service Muni provides to our customers is always Gene's primary concern. 
Mr. Turner thanked management, his union and his coworkers and particularly those on the street 
and in the shop. Chairman Flynn thanked Mr. Turner on behalf of the board. 

Roberta Achtenberg of the S.F. Chamber of Commerce and Paul Looman of GLS Research 
discussed the Chamber of Commerce survey results showing that a majority of riders are 
satisfied with Muni's service. She acknowledged all employees for the work done to affect this 
dramatic turnaround. 

Director Casey suggested that people from the immigrant community be included in next year's 
survey as they are heavily dependent on Muni. Director Black suggested using other languages 
for future surveys. The general manager noted that Muni is doing employee and rider surveys 
and he will look into that possibility. 

Director Lim noted that over the weekend there were dissatisfied customers on Van Ness due to 
the lack of signage for reroutes caused by the Black and White Ball and the Union Street Fair. 
She suggested that Muni put up a notice several days ahead and ask the hosts of these kinds of 
events to put up and monitor the signs. General Manager Burns will follow up with Operations 
to see what can be done.

No report was made.

-Status of the ATCS contract 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 



General Manager Burns discussed the rider and employee surveys and the suggestion by Director 
Black to have translation services available The phone survey had been completed prior to the 
last meeting. He has accepted the current suivey because less than 1% of those contacted had a 
language problem and the results were not be affected. Future surveys will have provisions for 
other languages. The employee survey was distributed with the June 19 paychecks. 

Directors Black and Casey questioned the low percent of people who were unable to participate 
in the survey because of language. Director Casey suggested being more inclusive in the future 
especially given the great diversity of language in San Francisco. He thanked the general 
manager for his prompt action on Director Black's request. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

The board secretary noted that she had heard from the CAC Chair, Linton Stables who said that 
there would be no official report since the CAC has been unable to meet due to a lack of a 
quorum. Chairman Flynn stated that a letter had been sent to each member of the Board of 
Supervisors asking them to select a representative to serve on the CAC. 

8. Public Comment 

Kevin Hughes, Electrical Workers Local 6, commended Mabel Sha and Elena Chiong for their 
efforts to get some of his members paid correctly. He called their efforts "no small feat" given 
the reorganization that was taking place in payroll at the time. 

Frederick Hobson, Animal Care Commissioner noted that his commission had passed a 
resolution urging the elimination of fares for all animals on Muni. He is dismayed that Muni's 
report was lacking in public participation. He urged the board to hold a hearing on the matter. 

Max Schweizer heard about the concerns associated with the passenger survey. He has a 
company that conducts on-board passenger surveys and wanted to let the board know of their 
existence.

merit pay for on-time performance and is willing to discuss his ideas with staff. 

RESOLUTION 01-072 

On motion to approve:

1 1 . Public hearing on Muni's Draft Short Range Transit Plan and close of SRTP public comment

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Norm Rolfe, San Francisco Tomorrow, reviewed the letter SFT submitted and highlighted their 
suggestions for electrifying the 47-Van Ness, TIDF fees, and Asset Development activities. 

Andrew Sullivan, Rescue Muni, spoke about service expansion and suggested that the Canopy 
over the Geneva Yard, acceleration of the route electrification program and the Geary Corridor 
development happen sooner than the timeframe listed in the SRTP. 

12. Discussing the Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board's proposed resolutions to landmark 
the Forest Hill Station and Muni Trolley Car #1. (Explanatory documents include a staff report 
and Landmark Board resolutions.) 

Tim Kelly, President, Landmarks Board agreed with the board that the ramifications of 
landmarking on the Forest Hill Station are somewhat stronger than those on Car #1. Their 
resolution has tried to incorporate language in recognition that the designation should in no 
way interfere with Muni's overriding needs to provide accessible service. 

Marion Heshemi, City Planning, noted that their goal is to preserve the structure and they 
recognize the sensitivity to keeping the structure functioning for it's primary goal, transit. She 
doesn't believe that Planning or the Landmarks Board would object to safety improvements 
and that they would follow the both the state and federal ADA guidelines. 

Director Bourgart asked for a report that addressed the effect of landmarking on Muni's ability 
to make accessibility, service, seismic, safety and telecommunication upgrades. He also asked 
staff to discuss grant programs available for landmarked buildings, the amount of money 
available and the competition for those dollars. He asked that staff bring the two designations 
as separate items for the board's consideration. 

No public comment. 

13. Authorizing the Director to execute an amendment to Contract No. 97-903 for 
Comprehensive Facility Security Services extending the term of the contract for the additional 
six-months to January 1, 2002. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and 
financial plan.)

-EEO Quarterly Status Report 
-Employee and Rider Surveys 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 

General Manager Bums presented the Special Recognition Award to Fernando Leal, Tom 
Sheridan, Hue Khuu, Michael Postel and Paul Lee. These individuals were Muni's Rail 
Roadeo team and on June 9, they competed in Boston at the International Rail Roadeo. The 
maintenance team finished second and Muni placed 5 th overall. Muni is proud of the team and 
their accomplishment. 

The board gave the team a standing ovation in appreciation for their work. Chairman Flymi 
noted that never in the history of the board had they given a standing ovation. 

The general manager noted that Byron Cobb won this year's Cable Car Bell Ringing Contest 
with Ken Lunardi and Frank Ware finishing 2 nd and 3 rd . The 26 th Annual Bus Roadeo was also 
held and had 24 contestants who performed 10 rigorous maneuvers that simulate the on-street 
challenges that operators face every day. The winning team of Kevin Grady, Alfaro Nelson 
and Rafael Cabrera will compete regionally and then at the International Bus Roadeo in 
Philadelphia. Burns noted that this was the first time that the local roadeo was produced by 
volunteers and he thanked the Safety & Training division and especially Maurice Wilson who 
spearheaded the event. 

Gigi Harrington, Deputy General Manager for Finance and Administration presented the 
Translink program to the board and noted that Phase 1 testing on the N-Judah will begin 
shortly and will last for 6 months. Following the first phase, staff will evaluate the program 
and make sure Muni's needs are met. Full-scale implementation is expected late in 2002. 

Vernon Crawley, EEO Manager, presented the quarterly EEO report. He noted that they 
reconciled the number of ADA accommodation cases they had with the number of cases that 
DHR had so number increased by 13. He stated that the Maintenance division as been a 
priority focus. 

Director Casey suggested that Mr. Crawley track the number of occurrences that are charged 
against repeat offenders and add that information when he presents the next quarterly report. 

General Manager Bums presented both the Rider and Employee Surveys to the board. He 
intends to use both surveys when setting priorities for the zero based budgeting process and 
the Mission-Vision-Values process. He introduced David Binder and Scott Summerfield who 
conducted both surveys and asked them to describe the key findings, process and results. 

The board restated their concern about reaching all people, particularly those for whom 
English is not their first language. The general manager stated that language interpreters will 
be used for all future surveys. 



Director Casey suggested that the pollsters use the same gradations for both the riders and 
employees for future polls and that it would be useful to have more questions about Muni 
service. Director Bourgart added that the employee surveys could also dig deeper into 
employee satisfaction and appreciation issues. He noted that the rider survey was the third 
one in the past few months that consistently shows that Muni is improving in the public's 
perception. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Linton Stables, CAC Chair, noted that they are short one person of a full complement of people 
on the CAC. He presented their first annual report to the board and discussed the CAC's 
comments on the DPT incorporation report. They are concerned that report isn't responsive to 
Prop. E and doesn't discuss the integration of various functions such as finance or engineering. 
The CAC is against relocating the enforcement function to the SFPD. 

8. Public Comment 

Jeti Hanna, Union Chair at Flynn, spoke about the air quality at Flynn. She noted it's very bad 
where the buses are because of a lack of ventilation. (Chairman Flymi asked the general manager 
to report back to the board about this situation.)

Market and Larkin Streets near the San Francisco Main Library. (Explanatory documents include 
a staff report, resolution and map.) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Jewel McGinnis, Vice President of the Blind Advisory Committee for the Library for the Blind 
and MAAC Vice-President supports the change. She noted that MAAC has approved the change 
and asked that Muni replace the talking sign bus shelter. 

Barbara Berman thanked staff for their consideration of people with disabilities. 



Gerald Hansen is opposed to the reroute, as the 19 line doesn't run on time. He suggested that 
Muni not run the line up Wisconsin but run it both ways on 25 th St. thereby shortening the route 
in both directions. 

Neil Mills related an incident that happened in front of library where an elderly gentleman, 
waiting for bus on cold evening, fell and broke his arm. He thinks it's a good idea to move the 
stop. 

Susan Hildreth thanked staff for their good work and urged the board to support the 
recommendation. 

Michael Housh asked the board to reinstate the stop to serve seniors and people with disabilities, 
as it will be of great assistance to library patrons. 

Martin Magid thanked the board for considering the item as it's a sensible rerouting pattern and 
important to people with disabilities and seniors. 

Marti Goddard added her thanks for the time and thought put into the reroute. She is the Access 
Services Manager at the Library and is concerned about patrons with disabilities. She also 
supports Ms. McGinnis' request for the replacement of the talking signs shelter. 

Cherry Elliott rides the 19-Polk to BART all the time and thinks the new route is redundant. She 
is concerned that it will add time to a line that is already behind schedule. She urged the board to 
restore the old route and end the line at the Library. 

Babbette Drefke, Potrero Hill, supports the route change but thinks it doesn't go far enough. She 
wants the route restored to the original route and thinks that patrons need straight lines to all 
destinations. 

Chairman Flynn asked about the difference in running times. Peter Straus replied that the 
difference was approximately 2 minutes and when the 19-Polk line was changed, another bus 
was added to the line. 

RESOLUTION 01-093 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Bourgart, Casey, Cisneros, Flynn, Lim and Vaughns 

11. Selecting Financial Security Assurance and Dexia Local Credit to provide Lending, Surety 
Guaranty or Standby Letter of Credit, and Loan Undertaking Payment services in connection 
with the Breda Light Rail Vehicle Leveraged Lease financing. (Explanatory documents include 
a staff report and resolution.) 



No public comment. 

Director Casey stated that while he had strong reservations about this process he would withdraw 
his objections until the legislature determines the public policy issue. He noted that Muni should 
lake advantage of monies that otherwise we wouldn't have access to but that it's a difficult item 
to decide upon without knowing the costs and benefits. 

No public comment. 

RESOLUTION 01-094 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Bourgart, Casey, Cisneros, Flynn, Lim and Vaughns 

The board canceled the closed session. 

ADJOURN - The meeting was adjourned at 6:25 p.m.

Muni's service plans for New Year's Eve are in place. Service will be free from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. 
and owl service will be doubled. 

As of mid- January, 2002 all LRV's will be Breda cars. The old Boeing fleet will be retired.

costs. 

Chairman Flymi asked for a report at the next board meeting about the advertising revenue.

and stressed that it's a vision document and not a true plan as it doesn't set priorities and contains

-Special Recognition Award 
-Review of Muni Websites 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 



Michael Burns introduced Mr. James Waterfield as this month's special recognition award 
recipient. Mr. Waterfield is an extraordinary individual who has been with Muni for 35 years, 
over 30 as a cable car operator. He is being recognized for his fundraising efforts for the 
Combined Charities campaign, American Heart Association, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society 
and for the Muni employee who lost her children in a fire last year. He is a great asset to Muni 
and the community. 

Mr. Waterfield thanked the general manager and admitted to being a bit overwhelmed. He 
doesn't participate in fundraising to receive recognition and feels that he just did a little bit 
because the people who donated did the most. 

Director Vaughns offered congratulations and stated that it is an honor and pleasure to witness 
this much-deserved recognition. 

Chairman Flynn congratulated Mr. Waterfield on behalf of the board. 

Michael Bums announced that staff is working with SPUR on the 2 nd Annual Stakeholder 
meeting which is expected to be held in February. 

New Year's Eve service was generally safe and uneventful for Muni and its' patrons. Bums 
thanked all the Muni employees who worked during the holidays. 

Translink Phase I is expected to be kicked-off on February 1. Muni has a few continuing issues 
but expects that all will be resolved to allow for the February 1 start-up. 

General Manager Burns invited the board to the Annual Awards Reception on Wednesday, 
January 23 at 5:30 in Alexander Room at the Westin St. Francis hotel.

preliminary FY2003 budget. (Explanatory documents include a staff report.) 

Michael Burns stated that Muni is experiencing revenue-related problems attributed to the 
economy and the September 1 1th impact on tourism. At the moment the numbers are fluid with 
Muni's actions being in a constant state of change as the fiscal picture changes. 

Gigi Harrington, Deputy General Manager, Finance reviewed the budget and revenue sources. 
She noted that the fare revenue has continued to worsen since September. Parking revenue has 
also been susceptible to the drop in the economy and tourism. Ms. Harrington reviewed a 
series of adjustments within the expenditure budget to adjust this fiscal year's budget shortfall of 
$20 million. 

Director Lim asked for an update on the current budget, in particular, Muni's current fiscal year 
expenditures prior to the next meeting. 

G.M. Bums said that the only service adjustments that Muni is looking at is in the South of 
Market area where service was implemented to take care of the dot com industry. He stressed 
that there would be no line cuts. 

Ms. Harrington reviewed the FY03 budget, which anticipates a $30.4 million decrease in 
revenue, plus approximately $20 million in mandated increases from negotiated MOU's and 
fringe benefit costs. The net deficit that Muni is facing in FY03 is approximately $45 million of 
which Muni has identified approximately $24 million in expenditure reductions. 

Director Vaughns acknowledged staff for their aggressive work and urged them to stay the 
course. 

Director Lim asked if Muni was also looking at ways to save money, such as checking 
warranties, as it would help the board in looking at the total budget picture. 

Chairman Flynn asked that the budget packet be sent to the board on January 25 th so they have 
enough time to review it prior to the special meeting on the 29 th . 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Andrew Sullivan, Chairman, Rescue Muni, noted that there are several areas of concern but 
mostly in the area of service cuts. He asked staff to provide additional detail on the service cuts. 
While Rescue Muni doesn't like service cuts, it's better to be specific so the public knows what 
to expect. He also suggested that the board vote on the FY02 changes to the budget and for 
FY03, he urged staff to make the information public and have a dialogue with constituent groups. 



( luu i man Flynn asked staff to provide detailed information on service cuts.

-City College Proposed Training Partnership 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 

General Manager Burns gave Reggie Smith the General Manager's Special Recognition Award. 
Mr. Smith's primary function is to serve Muni employees who have substance abuse problems 
and to support people in being drug free. Mr. Smith is the epitome of "putting people first" by 
creating a healthy and safe place to work. Mr. Smith acknowledged Barbara Conway and staff 
for their support and great work. Chairman Flynn expressed his appreciation on behalf of the 
board. 

Director Lim was recently honored in a tribute to Chinese Women for her life-long leadership in 
the community. Burns offered his congratulations to Director Lim. 

The Muni Stakeholders Event is scheduled for February 21 at 4:00 in the Board of Supervisors 
Chambers. Mayor Brown and Jeff Morales, the Director of Caltrans will speak on the 
importance of transit in San Francisco. 

The general manager stated that ads on the Breda cars will soon be appearing as allowed by the 
advertising contract. Staff is working with Viacom to minimize damage to the finish. 

Staff recently concluded an agreement with New Jersey to loan a PCC car to San Francisco to see 
if it can run on the F-line prior to the purchase of additional cars. These cars could be a boon to 
Muni in solving a significant problem. The car is expected to arrive next Monday. 

Translink Phase I began last Friday with 3,000 users. The test has gone well to date. 

Charles Flintroy passed away after a lengthy illness after 28 years with Muni. He spent a 
majority of his time at the Cable Car Division and had been deeply involved with the Joint Labor 
Management Board. 

Muni, TWU and City College have been working on partnership to create technical training and 
leadership development program for Muni employees. Suzanne Khorey and Phyllis McGuire 
from City College reviewed the proposed model with the Board. 

Director Casey commended the program that City College developed for Local 2 members. He 
noted that City College has led the way in developing programs to provide relevant information 
to employees. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Linton Stables, Chairman, CAC noted that while the CAC had been busy, they have no 
recommendations to make at this time. They are currently reviewing the budget and will present 
their recommendations at a future meeting.

Ernestine Weiss welcomed Rev. McCray to the board and thanked the general manager for her 
award. She reviewed a number of recommendations that she has heard from operators, such as 
having restrooms at the end of the line for the 30 and 45 lines and lengthening the bus stop at 
Sacramento and Fillmore. 

Ellen Murray spoke about schedule improvements and urged the board not to balance the budget 
on the backs of the operators. She advised that anything that impacts an operator's ability to 
drive and earn a living is not a schedule improvement.

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Item 9.2 removed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Cisneros, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

10. Approving the FY2003 Operating Budget of $449,022,263; approving the waiver of fares on 
New Year's Eve 2002, authorizing the continuance of the Class Pass Program with colleges and 
universities in San Francisco; and certifying that the budget is adequate to make substantial 
progress towards meeting the goals, objectives, and performance standards established pursuant 
to Section 8A.103 for fiscal year 2003. 



The commission secretary presented a revised resolution to board, which clarified the reference 
materials that contain the FY2003 budget. 

General Manager Burns presented a balanced budget to the board. Muni has worked hard to find 
creative solutions to address the $43 million budget deficit. Muni's ground rules for this process 
was that no one would be laid off, there would be no fare increases, and service would be reduced 
only in areas where service was inefficient or where we were providing more than the demand. 

Gigi Harrington, DGM, Finance, summarized the actions taken to bring budget into balance and 
the updated revenue projections and expenditure adjustments. This budget continues the Class 
Pass and the waiver of fares for New Year's Eve. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Curtis Taylor expressed concern about the deletion of the 9139 positions rather than keeping 
those positions as a cost savings. His concern is that once the positions are deleted, Muni won't 
get them back. He has asked management to furnish a list of upper management and for 
justification of bonuses 

Jean Ellis Jones stated that members of the Potrero division would suffer if the schedule change 
is put into effect. She urged the board not to cut the Potrero schedules as it would take Muni 
backward. 

Ellen Murray, Potrero Division, urged the board to reject the budget and send it back to staff. 
She asked the board not to balance the budget on the back on the employees who do the work 
and deliver the service. She suggested staff look at the Transit Impact Development Fee as a 
means to increase revenue. 

John Murray, Recording Secretary, TWU, Green Operator, is opposed to cuts being done on the 
backs of the drivers. He thinks the cuts in overtime make it more difficult for operators to live in 
the Bay Area. He urged the board to reject the budget and to go after people who haven't paid, 
such as the Transit Impact Development Fee. 

Dorian Maxwell asked staff to look at the running time on the 14-Mission, calling it unsafe. He 
urged staff not to cut the schedule but to save money by fixing the short running times rather 
than spending money on accidents that result from operators pushing to meet the schedule. 

Glenda LaVigne, 9139 Dispatcher, stated that deleting the 9139 positions will create adverse 
working conditions for the remaining people. She is opposed to the budget and to the deletion of 
the 9139 positions. 

Wallace Johnson, 9139 Dispatcher, suggested that the mobile units be equipped with air 
compressors and batteries to effect a quick fix on the street. He is opposed to cuts in the 
operators' schedule. 

6 



Ron Mitchell is tired of operators being the scapegoat. They work hard for very little and taking 
money from them isn't the answer to Muni's problem. He said that the vehicles they have don't 
make the grade and it's tough to deal with the crowds and hills. He urged the board to not take 
money from the operators. 

B.K. Chamberlain is concerned because the rank and file hadn't heard about the budget problems. 
He urged staff to start cutting at the top. 

William Sisk, Chairman at Green Division, recognized that if operators don't come to work, 
nobody moves. He suggested that maybe the Union and the Board should conduct a separate 
audit to see what's really going on. He urged the board to take another look at the budget. 

David Pilpel is concerned about ability of the agency to implement short-term experimental 
fares. He noted that full details of unfunded and deleted positions weren't available and that the 
CAC recommendations merit a written response. He would like to know what the deferred 5207 
capital projects are. He thinks that the board can't adequately say that the budget meets Prop E. 
standards. 

Ray Antonio, President, TWU-250A, wants to make sure that riders are interacted with in a 
positive manner. He suggested that managers taking a day off without pay and that sales of 
discount passes being managed better are two means to save money. He noted that Muni must 
maintain a standard of performance and that these cuts will not help Muni attain service goals. 

Selwyn Woodworm spoke about ongoing maintenance problems with the ETI coaches. He's 
concerned with the state of these buses since they have to be driven for the next 20 years. 

John Moran spoke about the misconception about maintenance overtime and the ability to 
provide service to the public. He added that mechanics don't have the proper tools to work on 
the Neoplan buses. 

Larry Martin, International VP, TWU, is concerned and worried because the operators are not 
satisfied. He pointed out that nobody talked to them about the budget and that they have 
excellent suggestions about how to resolve the deficit. TWU has outstanding issues that they 
would like to have resolved. 

Director Casey asked Chairman Flynn to recess the board meeting in order to meet with TWU to 
discuss a few of the issues presented. Following the recess, Chairman Flynn apologized for the 
delay and expressed the board's appreciation for the patience shown by the audience. 

Director Casey offered two amendments to the budget. The first is to retain all positions that 
were slated to be deleted with the stipulation that these positions would remain vacant through 
the fiscal year. The second amendment would allow the March 2002 General Sign-Up at the 
Potrero Division to proceed without any changes to the schedule and that TWU and Muni 
management would come up with a plan to meet the savings target.

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 

-Quarterly Service Standards Report 

-EEO Status report 

-Overview of the Department of Parking & Traffic 

-Ongoing Muni Activities 

The General Manager introduced this month's recipient, Jonell Jacobson. Ms. Jacobson is in 
charge of payroll services and is responsible for 15 employees producing 4400 paychecks every 
2 weeks. She has exhibited terrific leadership while the division converted to a new 
computerized payroll system and moved offices. Complaints from staff about payroll services 
have been virtually eliminated. Jonell Jacobson thanked the Board, the general manager and 
Ms. Harrington for the recognition. She feels fortunate to be part of an organization that is 
committed to public service. Chairman Flynn extended his appreciation on behalf of the board. 

General Manager Burns introduced a new brochure outlining how to get a job at Muni. This 
brochure will be used extensively for construction outreach efforts and in hiring employees. 

In the March election, voters approved Proposition 42, which permanently dedicates the gas tax 
to transit. Muni expects to receive $10-12 million annually in state transit assistance as a result 
of these revenues. The measure will take effect in 2008 and is the same formula that is currently 
applied to the gas tax. 

On Monday, the Executive Director of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission received 
formal word that the air quality conformity lapse that had been in effect in the region since 
January had been lifted, thereby clearing the way for preliminary engineering work on the 
Central Subway. Director Vaughns and Cisneros, members of the Board of Supervisors and city 
staff attended the APTA Legislative conference in Washington, advocating for the Central 
Subway and bus discretionary money. 

All the buses donated to the Winter Olympics have been returned. NBC did a very positive story 
on our buses, which we are showing to all employees, particularly to the maintenance employees 
who worked on those buses. 

Lisa Mancini, Chief Operations Officer presented the 2 nd quarter Service Standards Report. She 
noted that Muni has achieved the year-end target for on-time performance. 

Fred Hamdun, Executive Director of the Department of Parking and Traffic presented an 
overview of his department and introduced his senior management team who reviewed the 
functions of their respective divisions. 



Vernon Crawley, EEO Manager presented their quarterly report. He noted that it was a difficult 
quarter and asked that the report be put in context given the staffing issues that occurred. 
Replacements have been hired. Chairman Flynn asked that a quarter-by-quarter comparison of 
the training his staff is providing be included in future reports. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

David Pilpel, Vice-Chair, CAC presented their report. The CAC has examined office space at 
Muni and is next going to focus on station operations. Shortly theywill be visiting various 
facilities. He acknowledged Christine Butler for her efforts as part-time staff to the CAC. The 
CAC feels a need to strengthen the relationship between the CAC and the board as policy items 
are not reviewed by CAC prior to submission to the board for approval. 

8. Public Comment 

Max Schweitzer, Schweitzer Consulting, urged the board to fully fund the Service Planning 
Division's Route Efficiency Studies. (Chairman Flynn noted that the board received his letter 
and had given it to the general manager for his consideration.)

TRANSPORTATION, AND CITY ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY

requests, in which event the matter shall be removed from the Consent Calendar and considered 
as a separate item.

Chairman Flynn asked that the Polina Rutush vs. CCSF case be removed from the Consent

concerned about Muni's inability to identify the bus driver involved in the case. 

RESOLUTION 02-014 

(9.2) Accepting Contract No. MR-1 180, Flynn Facility Re-Roofing, approving final Contract 
Modification No. 2 for a reduction to the approved contract amount by $22,225, approving the 
final contract amount of $1,01 1,018, and approving the closeout of the contract with Best 
Roofing and Waterproofing. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution, contract 
modification and financial plan.) 

Chairman Flynn asked that staff include a status report on the current state of the project and the 
conditions of any warranties in all future contract close out reports. 

RESOLUTION 02-015 

(9.3) Ratifying and approving rides at no charge for the attendees of the 2002 American Public

Saturday, February 23 through Friday, March 1, 2002 upon presentation of proof of registration 
in the APTA "Marketing and Communications Workshop". (Explanatory documents include a 
staff report, and resolution.) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel wondered why this wasn't presented to the CAC in advance. Chairman Flynn 
responded that it was an issue of timing. APTA made the request after the last board meeting; 
thereby no approval was possible prior to their workshop. 

RESOLUTION 02-016 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Cisneros, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 

5 



(9.4) Revising and adopting the Records Retention and Destruction Policy (dated February 19, 
2002) and authorizing the Director to submit this policy to the Controller, the Retirement Board 
and Chief Administrative Officer; and to make future changes to the policy as required by local, 
state or federal laws. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, policy and resolution.) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel noted that the policy hadn't been reviewed by the CAC. He is concerned about 
future changes being delegated to Director of Transportation and wondered if the Administrative 
Code allowed for such delegation. 

Item 9.4 was removed from calendar and referred to Robert Bryan, Deputy City Attorney for 
response. 

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Rutush case, Item 9.3 and 9.4 severed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Cisneros, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

10. Authorizing the award of Contract No. MR-1 141, Third Street Light Rail Transit: King 
Street to 22 nd Street, to Mitchell Engineering/Obayashi Corporation, as the lowest responsive and 
responsible bidder, in the amount of $19,926,331.91. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report, resolution and financial plan.) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Pauline Peele is a Bayview Hunter's Point resident who serves on neighborhood Citizen's 
Advisory Council. She's been actively involved in the project since its' inception and urged the 
board to approve the contract. 

Doris Vincent, also on the neighborhood CAC, stated that Muni has done an excellent job of 
outreach to the community and she would like project to proceed. 

RESOLUTION 02-017

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Cisneros, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 



1 1 . Authorizing the Director to execute Amendment No. 3 to Contract CS-1 16, Professional 
Engineering and Support Services for the Metro East Light Rail Vehicle Maintenance and 
Operations Facility Project, in the amount of $294,219, for a total contract amount not to exceed 
$8,278,593 with the Association of AGS/Gannett Fleming, Inc. (Explanatory documents include 
a staff report, resolution and financial plan.) 

RESOLUTION 02-018 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Cisneros, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 

12. Adopting the Municipal Railway Transfer/Fare Receipt Policy which establishes that 
transfers/fare receipts shall be valid for travel on any vehicle (except Cable Cars) for at least 90 
minutes but for no more than two hours after the time originally issued, and shall not be required 
to be surrendered to the operator of the vehicle. (Explanatory documents include a staff report 
and resolution.) 

Peter Straus, Manager of Service Planning, recommended the policy as it is a straight forward 
reflection of the current practice without any changes to cash fares. It makes the policy 
consistent between the rail and rubber tire fleets and with staff practice. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel noted that this item has not been reviewed by CAC. He asked the board to refer the 
matter to them for review. He is concerned that, with Proof of Payment, the transfer had to be 
valid for the entire trip. 

Chairman Flynn continued the matter to the April 19 meeting and asked that some coordination 
over policy matters be developed with the CAC. 

ADJOURN - The meeting was adjourned at 6:28 p.m. 

A tape of the meeting is on file in the office of the Secretary to the Municipal Transportation 
Agency Board of Directors.

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 



Mr. Bums announced that the State Board of Equalization had ruled on a tax advantage for 
agricultural business that would have had a significant impact on revenues. Item 10 on the 
calendar would have mitigated the impact but a negotiated agreement had been reached as result 
of lobbying efforts. The compromise will result in Muni receiving approximately the same level 
of funding as before. 

Mr. Burns announced that the federal government has completed its Triennial Review with Muni 
completing all items satisfactorily. It's the best review Muni has in recent years and we were 
commended for the speed with which we fixed the few deficiencies. 

Baseball season has begun with a few exhibition games. Muni tested its' operating plan for 
season which provides essentially the same level of service as last year. Everything went 
smoothly. Service Quality Teams are helping fans and customers. 

Muni's Breda Car Lease/Leaseback initiative is moving through the final stages of the legislative 
process. It's scheduled to be heard at the Finance Committee of the Board of Supervisors next 
week. 

Muni is close to completing a new Mission, Vision, Values statement for the organization. Over 
1200 employees participated in the drafting of this statement. A final draft statement will be 
circulated to the board next week 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 
No report was made. 

8. Public Comment 

Bob Planthold stated that for several years, MAAC has pointed out that Muni hasn't been 
printing bilingual signage asking patrons to yield seats for seniors and people with disabilities. 
He urged these signs to be put on the new buses. He also discussed the high volume on the new 
buses. It's causing a disturbance in the neighborhoods and should be reset. (G.M. Burns is aware 
of and is working on the noise issue.)

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Review of Third Street Light Rail Outreach Program 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 

General Manager Bums announced that Muni's Breda lease-leaseback item was approved by the 
Board of Supervisors. Gigi Harrington and her team deserve special recognition and thanks for 
seeing this complicated transaction through the process so successfully. The transaction is 
expected to close by the end of the week and is expected to net approximately $38 million. Staff 
will return to the board with a request for a supplemental appropriation to expend these funds for 
specific projects. 

Chairman Flynn asked that staff prioritize the list of projects when the supplemental is returned 
to the board. 

The "Train the Trainer Program" began on April 15 with 10 people. The training is expected to 
be finished by May 17 thereby meeting Muni's commitment to have the training complete by the 
beginning of the fiscal year. 

Muni's alternative fuels pilot project is at the end of its first six-month testing phase. 
Over the next three weeks, Muni will be working with the Alternative Fuels Independent 
Oversight Committee and various stakeholders to review the draft. The item will be formally 
presented to the MTA Board on May 7 th . Muni hopes to have general consensus by the end of 
May on the next steps in the process. 

The baseball season officially began on April 5 th with 9 home games. Muni service worked well 
with only one problem on April 9 th that had a minor impact on ballpark service. 

On Thursday, April 25 Muni will celebrate the completion of the Muni Key Stop Project and the 
Duboce Bikeway project with the Department of Parking and Traffic and the Muni Accessibility 
Advisory Committee. This project marks Muni's fulfillment of a promise to ensure that the light 
rail system is accessible under the ADA. 

On Saturday, April 27 th , six teams will compete for the opportunity to represent Muni in this 
year's International Rail Rodeo, which will be held in Baltimore later this year. Muni finished 
second in the international event last year, which was a great achievement especially since Muni 
has not participated regularly in recent years. 

Muni is taking action to reduce the volume on bus announcements and turn signals. We are 

working with the manufacturer to give some audible warning of right turn without keeping the 

3 



neighborhood awake. We are also changing the announcement protocols to reduce the volume 
earlier in the evening. 

Vince Harris reviewed the Construction Outreach Program for the Third Street Light Rail 
Program. The goal of this program is to maximize employment and contracting opportunities for 
the neighborhoods. 

Chairman Flynn stressed that Muni must give sincere assistance to minority contractors. He 
suggested that staff look into what could be done with general contractors to make them help 
their subcontractors. He is also concerned about the bonding difficulties that subcontractors 
experience. General Manager Bums understands the issues raised and will provide details to the 
board when these contracts come for approval. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Linton Stables reviewed the items that the CAC considered this past month. They passed a 
resolution in support of the Parking and Control Officers joining the MTA pursuant to Prop. E. 
They recommend that Mum's transfer policy be approved and took no position on the Records 
Retention Policy. They will forward their recommendations for service on the 39-Coit line to the 
board. On Saturday, April 27, they will be touring Muni facilities and will end up at the Roadeo. 

8. Public Comment

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-EEO Quarterly Status report 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 

Arthur Olivar was presented with this month's Special Recognition Award. He located a young 
mentally challenged boy who had disappeared earlier in the day from his school. The child's 
parents called Mr. Olivar' s prompt action an "act of heroism". Mr. Olivar is a terrific example of 

1 



how employees make a difference in the community and he serves as a model for all employees. 
Mr. Olivar noted that any operator in his position would have done the same thing and he shares 
the award with all employees. Chairman Flynn expressed appreciation on behalf of the board 
and noted that Mr. Olivar' s actions raises the bar for all operators. Ray Antonio joined Muni in 
recognizing his good deeds and is especially proud because Mr. Olivar was one of his line 
trainees. 

General Manager Burns introduced Jose Cisneros as the Deputy General Manager of Capital 
Planning and Legislative Affairs. He will be responsible for long range planning, coordinating 
state and federal legislative advocacy efforts, Muni's marketing plan, and real estate. 

General Manager Burns revealed a new color scheme for Muni's bus fleet. Muni has undergone 
many changes over the past few years and we hope the new colors will represent the positive 
difference in service. Muni is planning to phase in the color scheme to avoid unnecessary 
expense. Directors were given the opportunity to review the new color scheme prior to the 
board meeting. 

On Sunday, April 28, approximately 150 Muni employees and family attended a production of 
"Ain't Misbehaving" as part of an ongoing effort to build our internal community. It was a fun 
event and we look forward to more opportunities for Muni employees to get together. 

On May 15, Muni will start a new shuttle service for residents of the Bayview Hunter's Point 
neighborhood. This pilot project will operate on Wednesdays with the route going from the 
Bayview Hunter's Point neighborhood, past San Francisco General Hospital and terminating at 
the Fanner's Market. This initiative is the result of the work of the Bayview Hunter's Point 
Health Task Force and will use Muni's alternate fuel vehicles. 

Muni's 7 th Annual Rail Roadeo was held on April 27. This year we had eight operators in the 
Operator Competition, and six teams in the Maintainer Competition. The winning team of 
operators was Chi Hau, Paul Lee, and Michael Postell. The top maintenance team is Danilo 
Geronimo, Petronio Ancheta and San Gee. They will compete in Baltimore at the APTA Rail 
Roadeo in June. 

After years of planning and community outreach, Muni will break ground on the Third Street 
Light Rail project. The official ceremony will be on Tuesday, May 28, 1 1a.m. at the Caltrain 
Station. 

The Caltrain Joint Powers Board passed their FY2003 budget, which included a cut in funding 
for the 80x, 81x, and 82x Shuttle Buses. Shuttle service will cease in late summer if the JPB 
budget remains unchanged. Muni will get the word out to riders about the proposed changes and 
other Muni services available to them as options. 

In the early morning of April 21, Muni and BART engaged in an Emergency Preparedness Drill 
with a simulated release of hazardous gas. The purpose of the drill was to evaluate existing 

2 



procedures and improve coordination among agencies. Muni will assess the information 
gathered and will be continuing drills such as these as part of our emergency preparedness plan. 

Vernon Crawley, Manager, EEO presented the EEO Quarterly report. Chairman Flynn noted 
that if the harassment cases shown for this quarter are the same cases from the last quarter, then 
Muni has a real problem. Mr. Crawley stated that all allegations are taken seriously and he 
would include additional information about the disposition of these cases when he brings the 
next quarterly report to the board. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Linton Stables, Chairman, Citizen's Advisory Council, urged Muni to replace the track bedding 
at Carl in Cole valley to reduce noise. Joan Downey, another CAC member and President, Cole 
Valley Improvement Association, presented signatures from the neighbors asking Muni to reduce 
noise and vibration. She said the noise is deafening and the vibrations are unacceptable. She 
asked Muni to keep the Cole Valley Improvement Association informed about Muni's plan. Mr. 
Stables also noted that Muni's vehicle list is out of date. 

8. Public Comment 

Barry Taranto, is a United taxicab driver who has worked with the city on many parking and 
traffic issues. He is upset over an incident that occurred on April 16 where he feels he was 
harassed by an inspector. There is an ongoing situation at the bus stop at Polk and O'Farrell and 
he would like a reasonable solution to be worked out. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE MUNICIPAL TRANSPORTATION AGENCY

Public Comment: 

Ronald Losch is opposed to awarding the contract to Mitchell as he doesn't think they are a 
qualified DBE and there is a discrepancy in their annual sales figures and the amount of work 
Mitchell says it has on hand. He urged Muni to be scrupulous in examining DBE contractors and 
thinks that the contract shouldn't be awarded until Muni completes an evaluation of the

-Ongoing Muni Activities 

1 



This past week Muni started the 78-Bayview shuttle pilot project, which will run every 
Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This project is the result of a multi-department task force put 
together by Mayor Brown and Supervisor Maxwell to improve health opportunities and options 
for residents of the Bayview Hunters Point district. The official kick-off will be held on 
Wednesday, May 29 at 1 1 a.m. at 3 rd and Palou. 

On Tuesday, May 28, Muni will officially break ground on the mainline portion of the Third 
Street Light Rail Project. Elected representatives who will be in attendance include 
Congresswoman Pelosi, Mayor Brown and members of the Board of Supervisors. The event 
will be held at 4"' and King streets at 1 1 :00 a.m. 

Muni service for Bay to Breakers was as much of a challenge as the race was for participants. 
Even though Muni had a good service plan, with the rain and cold, everyone wanted to leave as 
soon as race was over so waits were longer than usual. The rain and the race made traffic 
difficult with the usual 38 minute drive back to the start taking as much as 55 minutes. 

Michael Burns presented Muni's budget to the Board of Supervisors Budget committee. Muni 
staff attended all district hearings on the budget. There were few issues raised. 

Chairman Flynn asked that the Key Capital Projects Report be discussed at the next board 
meeting. 

Lisa Mancini, Chief Operations Officer, presented the Service Standards Quarterly Report. 

Larry Williams, Deputy General Manager, Human Relations presented Muni's Mission Vision 
Values Statement. 

Michael Burns presented the Alternative Fuels Demonstration Project. He reviewed the 1 1 -point 
agreement and the findings of the project to date. At this point, reliability is a critical factor for 
alternative fuel buses. Muni staff will continue to test these buses to see if they can improve 
reliability. Staff will also explore LNG buses and will develop an implementation strategy for 
approval by the board within the next 6 months. Staff will report back in November 2002. 

Ina Shlez, Department of the Environment, and a member of the Independent Oversight 
Committee commented on the process and results of the Alternative Fuel Pilot Project. She stated 
that enough data exists for Muni to make a decision and that further delays in purchasing new 
buses are damaging to public health. She stated that the report lacks objectivity, seems biased 
toward diesel buses with particulate matter traps and doesn't address Muni's need to replace 
older buses. 

Director Casey asked for copies of the IOC's report. In response to a request by Director Casey, 
Marty Mellara, lead engineer on the project noted that fuel cell technology is probably ten to 
fifteen years away.

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report. 
There was no CAC report presented. 

8. Public Comment 

David Pilpel discussed the Alternative Fuel Pilot Project and vehicle availability list. He noted 
that the CAC is waiting for a response on a number of other issues. He noted that the CAC needs 
to have a better understanding of how DPT matters will be handled by CAC. (Michael Bums 
responded to the issues raised by Mr. Pilpel and noted that the CAC Chairman has been 
participating on the DPT merger task force.) 

Dave Snyder, Exec Director, San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, introduced himself and expressed 
his eager anticipation of the merger. He is optimistic that, given the recent improvements made 
at Muni, San Francisco will have a safer environment. He noted that there is a bicycle plan that 
will propose the ability to bike to every neighborhood in San Francisco. He would like to 
present it to MTA Board. (Chairman Flynn asked Mr. Snyder to outline his suggestions for the 
board. Director Casey said that the board would welcome a presentation on the bicycle plan.) 

Ray Antonio, President 2 50- A commented on the service standards. One tiling that affects 
unscheduled absences is that operators use their sick leave before they retire. He suggested that 
the city look at buying back unused sick leave. He noted that TWU is generally in favor of the 
Mission Vision Values Statement and would like to see old attitudes change, beginning at the 
top. Operators who participated in the Alternative Fuel testing program are concerned about a 
lack of power, slower take-offs and issues regarding safety and security. 

Roger Capilos, Kirkland Safety Representative, has been involved in testing both the natural gas 
and hybrid buses. Operators are more comfortable with the hybrid buses. The CNG buses are 
heavy, exhausting to drive and because they are slow to accelerate, they might increase accidents. 
He thinks there could be serious problems if Muni went with CNG buses and that it would be 
detrimental to Muni and to serving our passengers. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE MUNICIPAL TRANSPORTATION AGENCY 
BOARD ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTION AS STATED BY THE DIRECTOR OF 
TRANSPORTATION, AND CITY ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

• Special Recognition Award 

• Quarterly Report on Key Capital Projects 

• Ongoing Muni Activities 

Director Burns presented three radio commercials for the "Our ComMUNIty" Campaign. As of 
last week, ads were played on all major radio stations three times per day. The ads capture the 
same themes of community and service and are a way to continue the campaign in more 
intimate way. 

The Third Street Corridor Groundbreaking event at Caltrain Station was a festive and well- 
attended event. Many federal, state and local officials attended and Muni received positive 
news coverage of the ceremony. 

Director Burns reviewed two external surveys recently completed. Both the Controller's 
Citizens Survey and the one done by Rescue Muni snowed that Muni continues to improve in 
quality. These surveys help identify problem areas and target goals to address those areas. 

Approximately 125 senior managers are meeting at a "Senior Management Advance" to 
discuss issues and challenges and to establish FY03 goals. 

Lisa Mancini, Chief Operating Officer discussed the power failure in the subway that occurred 
on Monday, June 10. A voltage monitoring system failed which was replaced. An apology was 
posted at all stations. Currently, all systems are okay. Ms. Mancini also discussed a fire on a 
54-Felton bus as a result of a flat tire. No passengers were on coach at the time. 

Chairman Flynn noted that in Quarterly Report on Key Capital Projects, projects were listed as 
complete, which, to the average reader, means it's done. In fact, the project may not be closed 
out yet. Vince Harris suggested that future report could distinguish between projects that were 
substantially completed vs. fully closed-out. 

Director Vaughns congratulated the Director of Transportation for the cover story in "Mass 
Transit" magazine. The article was excellent.

SF Muni: MTA June 4, 2002 minutes Page 5 of 7 

the protest were in listing TRCP as a subcontractor. Muni has determined that TRCP is a 
supplier and waived the mistake in the bid documents. 

Director Casey noted that the Board wasn't in a position to weigh Mr. Losch's legal arguments 
and asked Mr. Losch were he was going with all this. Mr. Losch replied that he no intention of 
filing a lawsuit but thinks approval by the board sends the wrong message.

sound-producing electronic devices are prohibited at the meeting. He advised that any person 
responsible for the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound-producing 
electronic devices may be removed from the meeting. 

5. Introduction of New or Old Business by Board Members 

6. Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Ongoing Muni Activities 

Dwight Kirby was recognized by the Director of Transportation as this month's Special 
Recognition Awardee. The action that Mr. Kirby took saved the life of Mr. Lacy who was the 
victim of a violent attack. Mr. Kirby saw the incident and without compromising the safety of 
himself or his passengers, scared off Mr. Lacy's attackers and took care of Mr. Lacy until the 
police arrived. Director Burns saluted Mr. Kirby' s sense of community and is proud to have 
him working for Muni. 

1 



Al Lacy called Mr. Kirby a hero and thanked him for saving his life. Chairman Flynn gave a 
special thanks to Mr. Kirby on behalf of the Board. 

Director Bums noted that 120 senior managers met on June 3 rd and 4 th to discuss key issues and 
challenges that Muni will face next year. They reviewed this year's accomplishments and set 
department-wide goals for next year. Much time was spent on the Mission Vision Values 
process. The managers also spent a morning at the Woods division cleaning buses. 

Director Burns announced service reductions on the 80/81/82x routes due to Caltrain's 
diminished budget. Originally all funding was cut but approximately $200,000 was put in their 
budget for the service. The lines will have to be scaled back. A calendar item will be prepared 
for the board for action at the July 16 meeting. Notice of the proposed reductions will be posted 
along the affected lines. Looking at ridership patterns, 80% of the rides are in the morning. 
Afternoon commuters seem to utilize other routes in the area to make their Caltrain connection. 
Those routes will continue to be available. 

On August 1, Muni will replace the "D" discount fast pass with a monthly fare sticker affixed to 
a valid regional ID. This will reduce the fraudulent use of the discount fast pass. Valley 
Transportation Authority and AC Transit currently use the sticker and it has resulted in a 
dramatic reduction in cost. It will also benefit the operator because they won't have to ask 
passengers to show their ID. Muni will also introduce an "S" fast pass for seniors who are not 
eligible for the RTC discount ID. This change has received the full support of the Muni 
Accessibility Advisory Committee (MAAC). 

Referring to a memo provided to the board, Director Burns noted that next year's DBE goal will 
be 29%. Tins new goal is required to be made public for 45 days before the board can act. The 
45-day period will end on July 6. The board will be asked to approve the goal at their July 16 
meeting. 

7. Citizen's Advisory Council Report 

Linton Stables, CAC Chair reported that the CAC reviewed the Service Standards. Some of their 
recommendations were incorporated into the calendar item currently before the board. The CAC 
also reviewed the proposed budget and they recommend adoption of the budget adjustments, 
particularly the platform and professional services reductions. The CAC suggests that much of 
the reduction should come from the Municipal Railway Improvement Fund. The CAC will 
forward their recommendations for changes to the Passenger Service Report process. Mr. Stables 
also announced that he intends to step down as Chairman of the CAC in July. 

Chairman Flynn congratulated Mr. Stables on his service and expressed his appreciation on 
behalf of the board. 



8. Public Comment 

Andrew Sullivan, Rescue Muni noted that the Caltrain Express service cuts are an opportunity to 
run a miniature E-line during the rush hour from Pier 39 to Caltrain. He reminded the board that 
the DPT merger is coming up and that Rescue Muni is in favor of the merger. He offered 
congratulations to Muni on their recently completed rider survey and thanked staff for the 
substantial progress. He is concerned about Metro service and hopes the numbers keep 
progressing. 

Charlie Walker stated that the community is greatly concerned about the hazardous and toxic 
waste material that is being dug up and reburied on Third Street. He urged Muni not to rebury 
the material and to replace it with clean material. He urged staff to closely monitor contractors to 
make sure all steps are taken to satisfy the neighborhood.

Director Vaughns asked for clarification about the item and item 9.6 from the previous meeting. At 
the last meeting, Director Black had asked that the item be removed from the calendar. Since SEIU, 
Local 790 had no objection to the certification, it was put on the agenda for consideration at this 
meeting. 

On motion to approve Item 9.4: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 

(9.5) Approving the plans and specifications and authorizing the Director to advertise bid call for 
Contract No. MR-1 189: Muni Metro Extension Station Enhancements Project. (Explanatory 
documents include a staff report, resolution, and financial plan.) 

RESOLUTION 02-052 

No public comment. 

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Item 9.4 severed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

10. Approving FY03 Service Standards milestones and amendments to the rules concerning 
performance measures. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and service 
standards.) 



Lisa Mancini reviewed the goals for FY03. An open invitation was extended to all labor unions 
to discuss the goals. No issues were raised. The goals were also reviewed with the Citizens 
Advisory Council. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel asked if the notice requirements had been met. He also inquired about how 
lowering the transit ridership goal relates to the Earthjustice lawsuit settlement. He thinks that 
schedules should be published whenever it changes. (The commission secretary stated that all 
notice requirements had been met.) 

Norman Rolfe addressed headway adherence. He thinks it's important to have a goal of plus or 
minus 3 minutes because it's hard on intending riders who are waiting for a bus later in the 
evening in inclement weather. He pointed out that lines with longer headways are those that 
aren't normally in heavier traffic so it's easier to meet the schedule. He urged the board to keep 
headway adherence as short as possible. 

Andrew Sullivan echoed Mr. Rolfe' s comments. It makes more sense to have a narrower gap for 
buses with longer headways. He noted that the impending merger with DPT should make it 
easier for Muni to reach its' goals as witnessed by the increase in service on the 30 and 45 lines 
due to moving traffic lanes and signal pre-empts. He pointed out that if Muni had acquired CNG 
buses, Muni would have missed its target goals badly. Muni made the right decision last year 
and should purchase clean diesel buses again this year. 

The board secretary noted that the board was being asked to take action on two resolutions 
related to this item. The first resolution would adopt the FY2003 milestones. The second 
resolution asked the board to adopt the FY2003 performance standards as shown in Amendment 
No. 3 to Section 4 as rules of the Agency. 

RESOLUTION 02-053 

On motion to adopt the FY03 milestones: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 
RESOLUTION 02-054 
On motion to approve the performance standards: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 



11. Amending the MTA Board Rules of Order to include changing the start time of the Regular 
Meetings; including a provision regarding non-interference with Parking Citation procedures; 
changing the Order of Business and establishing that the MTA Rules of Order shall also be the 
Rules of Order for the Parking Authority. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, draft 
Rules of Order and resolution.) 

Chairman Flynn asked the Board to give the Board Secretary any suggested changes or 
amendments by June 25 for consideration at the July 2 meeting. 

No public comment. 

12. Authorizing the Director to execute the Amendment #4 to the Agreement with the 
Association of AGS, Inc. and Gannett Fleming, Inc. for Design and Construction Support 
Services for Contract CS-116, Muni Metro East Light Rail Vehicle Maintenance and Operations 
Facility, in the amount of $413,522, for a total contract amount not to exceed $8,692,115. 
(Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution, agreement and financial plan.) 

No public comment. 

RESOLUTION 02-055 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 

13. Authorizing the Director to execute Amendment No. 7 to Contract No. CS-105, Independent 
Safety Consulting Support for Advanced Train Control System Project, with Lea+Elliott, Inc., to 
extend the Agreement to April 30, 2003. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, 
resolution, agreement and financial plan.) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel wondered if any work had been undertaken since February 28. The underlying 
issue is making ATCS work and he hopes no further extensions will be needed. (Vince Harris 
replied that very little work has been done since February 28.) 

RESOLUTION 02-056 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns 



14. Re-approving the FY2003 Operating Budget including the waiver of fees on New Year's 
Eve 2002 and revisions to the transfer policy; authorizing potential changes affecting personnel; 
authorizing short-term experimental fares as needed; authorizing the continuance of the Class 
Pass Program with colleges and universities in San Francisco; and certifying that the budget is 
adequate to make substantial progress towards meeting the goals, objectives, and performance 
standards established pursuant to Section 8 A for fiscal year 2003. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report, resolution, agreement and financial plan.) 

The Commission Secretary noted that a few minor changes were made to the resolution to reflect 
the accurate attachments and to correct the title of the Director of Transportation. 

The Director of Transportation reviewed the current budget shortfall over and above what was 
presented to the board in February. Mr. Bums noted that TWU 250-A was reconsidering the 
city's proposal next week but other unions had rejected the city's proposal. The new budget 
totals $454,767,176. 

To close the $4.7 million gap, staff is proposing technical adjustments to platform runs - 
reducing standby runs; run efficiencies; reducing professional services, training and marketing 
and reducing money for training. Mr. Burns is still waiting for a proposal from TWU regarding 
the 52 operator pay hours at Potrero as agreed upon when the board approved the budget in 
February. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel reviewed the budget last week and thinks staff did a good job. He asked the board 
to note the CAC's recommendations and expressed his concern about fare issues. 

Director Vaughns asked Michael Burns to confirm that this is a budget that he can live with. Mr. 
Burns replied that while Muni is at the edge of what it can do, it is a budget that Muni can live 
with. If there are any future cuts to be made, staff will probably have to look at the revenue side. 
This budget is the worst-case scenario. If other unions agree to the city's proposal, some of the 
services can be restored. 

Chairman Flynn acknowledged Lisa Mancini and Gigi Harrington for the work they did on the 
budget while Mr. Bums was out of town. They deserve special recognition. 

RESOLUTION 02-057 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Casey, Flynn, Lim, McCray and Vaughns
